Try this

I’d like you to try this little experiment. Go to the website of your favorite newspaper and type this into the search box: “Constitution Day”

Now, type in this: “Hispanic Heritage Month” or this: “Mexican Independence Day”

I submit that this just might be the problem.

Now, go read Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution and see if our Congress is functioning the way it was set up.

May I suggest that we have failed to secure our borders.

Instead, the government is bailing out AIG, Freddie Mac and Fanny Mae (but not Lehman Brothers) and all those folks who bought houses they can’t afford. And they are writing stimulus checks, all with the full faith and credit of the United States Government. (That must be a LOT OF FAITH and not much CREDIT.)

I suppose it would be one thing if all the basics of government were in tip-top shape. You know, the basic stuff like roads, bridges, wars, treaties, and borders. Then maybe Washington could tackle everyone else’s problems. But they aren’t in tip-top shape. (Somehow, I think the Founding Fathers knew to keep it simple.)

So, we’ve got Congress NOT DOING the things they SHOULD … and getting mixed up in things they SHOULDN’T.

I’m thinking we ought to get back to basics here, forgo the politically correct fluff, and study the Constitution.

Until we do we will continue to consider candidates like Ron Paul and Duncan Hunter unelectable…while throwing tons of money at candidates who appeal to us but are entrenched in a self-protecting system that has power way beyond what was originally intended. And that is how the campaigns are funded and candidates brought forward.

Start reading the Constitution today.
